New building coming to drug addiction help center

CHARLOTTE, AR (KAIT)- A new building is coming to an organization that focuses on saving the lives of men not only in Region 8, but across the country.

A groundbreaking ceremony happened Tuesday in Charlotte, Arkansas where John 3:16 Ministries is beginning construction on their new multipurpose building.

Director of the ministry, Bryan Tuggle, says their doors are open to any men in need of help dealing with drug addiction. "We're a long term ministry, 6 months to a year. It does not cost anything to come here. We take no state or federal funding. We lead them out of their addictions through time, through God's word," Tuggle said.

Paragould resident and member of John 3:16 Ministries, Carl Reeves, says they've been needing this new building for some time now. "The possibilities that this is going to enable us to have to reach out to even more men and Sundays our chapel is packed. Which is a good thing. It's going to give us a bigger space to work, to have service out of, and to work out of," Reeves said.

The new facility will be 24,000 square feet and house around 300 people in their dining hall. There will also be an auditorium with an elevated stage, classrooms, interview rooms and a kitchen.
